One of the UK’s leading household names is looking to expanding their digital function with an Automation Developer. There’s an on-going digital transformation across the business and there are some really exciting projects in the pipeline. The digital team has enjoyed creating an agency style development environment, with all the resources and funding of a hugely successful business. There's a real emphasis on helping techies grow their skills and there will be support for training / courses and to learn new tech and best practice. 

What skills you’ll be needing

  • Ability to create automated build/deployment pipelines using Octopus/Azure DevOps. 
  • Skilled in building infrastructure from code using Ansible or Terraform. 
  • Development experience using MS & front-end technologies; C#, .Net Core, WCF, HTML, CSS, jQuery.

What you’ll be doing

Your primary responsibility will be to support the development team in creating automated build & deployment pipelines from the ground up, in order to optimise software delivery. You’ll be configuring infrastructure and utilising APIs to deliver solutions which are developed both internally and via 3rd party cloud services. You’ll be owning deployments across multiple environments, working closely with the wider digital team to offer advice & expertise on best practices, as well as involving yourself in code reviews. This role sits in between development & operations, so you’ll need an adaptable mindset with an ability to liaise with different teams and stakeholders to ensure timescale estimates are on-track and that delivery is at the highest possible level. Automation is a massive focus for the business so it’s expected that you will act as an advocate for other teams.

What you’ll get in return for your talents
